Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has issued a moving statement on regards to the riots at the Us Capitol.
The 73-year-old actor posted a lengthy video on Twitter calling for unity ahead of president-elect Bidens turn in office. While issuing this, he had sat in a grand chair in front of an American flag to address his fans following the horrific scenes as a violent and brutal mob stormed the Capitol building.
Addressing fans, he said he grew up in Austria and was very aware of Kristallnacht or the night of broken glass, and during that time, they did not just break the door to the building that housed the American democracy, they trampled the very principles on which their country was founded. He further stated that this had begun with lies and intolerance and he knows that there is fear in the country and all over the world and we must be aware of dire consequences of selfishness and cynicism.
President Trump sought to overturn the results of a fair election. He sought a coup by misleading people with lies.“President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever. The good thing is he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet,” he said of the disgraced president.
“But what are we to make of those elected officials who have enabled his lies and his treachery? I will remind them of what Teddy Roosevelt said, ‘Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president.” said Arnold.
